    Filippo, there are not words that can express how sad this news is. Bob is correct, as a group or individual, we are here for you. I pray you will find a peace beyond understanding through this and my condolences to you and all that were impacted by Margherita. Although we are thousand of kilometers away, our hearts, prayers, and thoughts are with you.

    Filippo, I am devastated to hear of your loss. I'm sorry that cancer has claimed yet another victim and taken your wife from your life. If there is anything that we as a group, or I as an individual can do for you, please be sure to let us know...

    Hello to all; unfortunately the brain tumor left no way out for Margherita: after 5 months of struggle his body gave up and died, at 53 years old. I am broken, my heart is broken, probably I will no longer approach the modeling ... for now nothing seems to make more sense to me ... for some time you have also been part of my family: I love you and I greet you all.

    I am praying as I type!
    Filippo, here is my email, tchalfant at earthlink dot net, if you need someone to pray with or talk with. I am there if you need an ear.
    May you both feel God's presence and His peace through this!
    Peace,
    Tom

    Hi everyone,
    I will be absent from the forum for a while, maybe forever ...
    My wife Margherita was hospitalized in neurology in Padua; they found a large mass on the frontal lobes of the brain ... the situation is very serious ... my heart is broken ...
    If you can remember her in Vs. prayers.
    I embrace you all.
    Filippo

    I've been watching your build for some time but just got around to registering. Your work is amazing but that periscope housing is a work of art. If mine turns out 1/10 as nice I'll be happy.

    If I may ask, what are you using for your nut/bolt/washer detail?

    Amazing detail! That will pay off in the end.
